Free Electrons as a Resource for Quantum Technologies

Ron Ruimy was born in 1998, grew up in Moshav Talmey-Yechiel, and now resides in Haifa. From an early age, his interest in natural sciences and technology was cultivated by his mother, an avid reader and curious personality. Seeking a career filled with riddles and challenges, he embarked upon a double major in electrical engineering and physics at the Technion immediately after graduating from high school. During his undergraduate studies, Ron started working with Prof. Ido Kaminer on a research project that led to a successful publication in the eminent journal Physical Review Letters, proposing the use of free electrons inside an electron microscope as a new tool for imaging of quantum coherence.

During the final year of his BSc studies, which he completed summa cum laude, Ron started working on his MSc with Prof. Kaminer, and he then transferred to a direct PhD track. His research focused on free electrons and electron microscopy and sought-after possibilities to create new kinds of quantum technologies. Alongside his research, Ron enjoys teaching and lecturing and looks forward to developing both as a researcher and as an educator.
